The bow is placed so that the end with a ring attached faces upwards. The player takes the top of the bow in the mouth and changes its tension by pressure of the thumb of the left hand, while supporting the base of the bow with the palm of the hand. The bow string ( of twine made from a plant) is plucked with the thumb and index finger of the right hand.
